PENSACOLA, Fla. —

The Air Force has cleared Eglin Air Force Base in Florida to begin limited flights of its six F-35 jets.

The Air Force issued a military flight release for the Joint Strike Fighters on Tuesday. The jets began arriving at the base last year, but the Air Force had issued a no-fly order for the base because of concerns over equipment and safety.

A base spokeswoman said it is unknown when flights will begin.

The supersonic, stealth jet is the nation's most-advanced and most-expensive weapons program at $65 million to $100 million per plane. Eglin is home to pilot and maintainer training for the jet.
